Navy and white gingham sets off colorful patchwork beautifully in this pretty little tote. This is a great project for scraps that results in a lovely bag to keep for yourself or to give.
There’s a large pocket on the outside and a smaller one inside to keep things organized. In-R-Form Foam Stabilizer is used to give the bag structure and to allow it to stand up on its own.
The bag zips shut to keep everything contained. If you’re a bit intimidated by zippers, don’t be. This one is a cinch to install.
While the finished dimensions are not provided, the bag is about 12″ square before the bottom is squared off. So plan on it being a couple of inches shorter than that.
Watch the video below as Erica from Confessions of a Homeschooler demonstrates how the bag is made. You’ll find a sheet with cutting instructions here and more photos of the bag and other info here.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
